Thanks, literatin. Those look good. I see you are still on the P&D thread. I did it last year but this spring I am making up my own schedule, based loosely on various ones I have done before. I have found whatever schedule I follow seems to make little difference to my time In a marathon!
Joolska, I agree. Before I took up running I would never gone out in the sort of skimpy clothes I now run in on a hot day. Because they are functional, though, rather than for show, it somehow seems okay. Also, I think that running gives you body confidence.
Something else I can't find is a pair of plain, black shorts, loose rather then skin-tight, with (most essential) a zip pocket in the back. I have an old pair by Ronhill which I've worn to death, but nobody seems to sell anything similar now without a coloured trim, usually in the ubiquitous pink.
